Day 12: Prominent Web Hosting Providers

Now that you have a basic idea of what a web host is and how to choose one, let me list out a few major web hosting services available online.  You can look into each of them and settle for one that best suits your business needs.

1. BlueHost

Web Hosting Service - BlueHost

BlueHost is the most popular web hosting provider and I can personally vouch for them.  I’ve been using BlueHost to host dozens of websites over the past 5 years and I’m impressed.  Their excellent customer service keeps me going back – making them my all time choice.

2. HostGator

Web Hosting Service - HostGator

HostGator is another well-know web hosting service.  Although I haven’t personally used it, I have come across some really good reviews.  The advantage with HostGator is the different hosting plans they provide.  If you are just starting out, you can go with a low-cost plan that has only the basic features for now and upgrade as your business grows.

3. Synthesis

Web Hosting Service - Synthesis

Synthesis is the web hosting service provided by CopyBlogger.  They specialize in hosting for WordPress sites only, and offer a variety of features based on the plan you choose.  Their services are however slightly more expensive than others – plans start from $27 per month.

4. InnoHosting

InnoHosting

InnoHosting is another good web hosting service.  Their uniqueness is that they guarantee 99.9% uptime along with round the clock technical support.  InnoHosting also has a variety of plans you can choose from based on your budget.

Coupon Codes & Deals

You can search online for coupon codes that will reduce the cost of your hosting.  I have come across HostGator coupons that offer hosting for as little as 1 cent a month!  You could also look out for special holiday offers.  Most hosting providers offer good deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

I hope this list gives you an idea of where you can purchase your web hosting online.  Look out for a detailed post tomorrow on how to set up your website online.
